Thanks nwgj for the musical explanation. I am musically clueless. I guess it would be common. For a while yesterday, I thought it sounded a bit like "That Smell" by Lynyrd Skynyrd, but that wasn't released until October of '77.

"sounded a bit like "That Smell" by Lynyrd Skynyrd, but that wasn't released until October of '77. "

Skynyrd did play "That Smell" as early as Jan 77 (Japan) but I have never seen a setlist from before that that had "That Smell" on it.

BUT, they did play Winterland in 75 & 76 AND the Dead were not really out on tour much then AND they could have hung out—so maybe Allen Collins strums some chords and they resonate with Jerry and... It could have happened!

Enjoy,

"Rhiannon" by Fleetwood Mac is another song that alternates F and A Minor.
